When Grace Andreas's sister, Petra, and her husband are both killed, Grace inherits the Power and responsibilities of the Oracle of Louisville, as well as her sister's two young children--neither of which she is prepared for. Then Khalil, Demonkind and Djinn Prince of House Marid, decides to make himself a part of the household both as guardian and counterpoint to Grace's impudence towards the Elder Races.
Reread Review: I am upgrading my review to a 4 star on rereading. I am reading each book back to back and I a sure that enhances each book but that is not why I rescored the book.
The romance and coming together of the Djinn and the Oracle as equals is powerful and touching. It is really moving romance with grief and love and healing. The world building is excellent as always. I am really glad I reread it and plan to do so again!
First Review; I enjoyed this and stayed up late to finish it. I am not sure I would have if it was a stand alone. Its appeal is that it a part of a story in progress. It was fun.
